I’m sure other readers can think of alternative ‘D’ that fit the council’s actions... I can think of Disproprtionate, Divisive, Dictatorship... I can think of one ‘UnD’ - UnDemocratic. If the council wanted to put Sheffield in the national spotlight it certainly succeeded. To quote from the Peter Barkham’s article entitled “Is this a war on trees?” about Sheffield’s trees in The Guardian of November 22, 2016, “There is something rotten in Sheffield and it’s not the 36,000 mature street trees”.I and many others would agree.
